My Make Me Read It Readathon TBR

A little while ago, I told you guys that I was going to be taking part in the Make Me Read It Readathon, hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ Tea and Titles. The special part of this readathon is that YOU got to vote for what books I am going to read.

The results are in, so here is my TBR for the next week:

  1. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (29 votes)
  2. These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly (13 votes)
  3. Eragon by Christopher Paolini (10 votes)
  4. Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn (10 votes)
  5. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman (7 votes)

There were a lot more books on my poll, but these are the winners. My goal is to read at least three books this week…which would have been easier if some of the winners hadn’t been massive.

I just have to finish up Elantris (my current read) before I start Shadow and Bone. I’m really excited to read it, especially seeing how much it killed in the poll.


Are you taking part in the readathon? What books won in your poll? Were they the ones you expected to win?

Make Me Read It Readathon: What Should I Read?

Hey everyone! One of my goals this summer is to take part in a readathon, so when I saw a ton of bloggers posting about the Make Me Read It Readathon, I decided to take part! I’m really excited because this is my first readathon (during school I have no hope of being able to take part in them).

The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ Tea and Titles. It runs from July 9th to July 16th. Here are the rules:

Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.

I have chosen a mix of books that I have had on my shelf for a while now and recent (or planned) purchases. For a lot of these books, I don’t know how much I’ll like them, which is why I have put off reading them, but I hate owning unread books, so I hope this readathon forces me to clear off my TBR shelf!

I need your help to decide which books to read! Please vote 🙂
